This is what happens when corporations are too big too fail... with the promise of taxpayer dollars or cash that just rolls off the printing presses the US government has deleted the checks and balances that make free markets work.

market pressure is no longer determining what companies pay their workers... the government does. so instead of pandering to consumers... big corporations pander to government to protect their bottom lines.
